Sir Michael Stoute sends just one to the meeting today, COURAGE, who made a promising start to his career at Newmarket and should have come on enough for the run to take this. Warcrown is likely to prove a big threat as his close second at Hamilton was a decent run and he should appreciate this slightly shorter trip after being caught on the line. Darling Grace ran a couple of times at Yarmouth and showed enough potential to suggest she can find a race while On The Hoof was staying on strongly over 6f at Pontefract last time so this extended 7f looks ideal.
